I have a clip in V1 on my timeline that is seven seconds long. I put a clip that is 9 seconds long right on top of that 7 second clip on V2. I want to get that 9 second clip on Track 2 to be 7 seconds like the clip beneath it. I know there are a few ways to do this, but I want to do it on the timeline.
Is there a way to take the end of that nine second clip on Track V2, go into Trim Mode, drag it to the left and make it snap to the edit of that seven second clip on track V1? I tried it and it did not work for me. The only way I could do it, is go the seven second mark on V2, Add Edit, then go into trim mode, drag it to the left until it snapped at the Add Edit point.
I'm trying not to have to do the Add Edit on track V2 and just have it snap to the edit on V1
Someone more clever than me might figure out a way to do this nicely in the dragging int the timeline only, but I would just trim off the last two seconds of the clip and align it. don't pay attention to the content. Match frame to bring it up in the source monitor and set a mark for where I want it to start or end...then mark clip on V2 and overwrite it. Quicker than it sounds.
